In an increasingly busy world, demand for quick, responsive, high street vehicle repair has seen companies like Kwik Fit become national success stories. To fill the skills demand for experienced technicians who can operate in a fast-paced garage environment we have developed the Vehicle Service Technician programme.
You will need to have completed the Level 1 full-time introductory course, have prior work experience or be in a position to move into a work placement in this sector. Once you have completed the Level 2 qualification, you will be able to work in the industry or further study or an advanced apprenticeship.
This two-year apprenticeship is ideal if you want to earn while you learn and have a service centre willing to employ you for the duration of the course.
